D:Fuse is a DJ, Remixer, Producer, Writer and Drummer. â€œMusic is about life; music is about people. It is my life dream to bring music to the people. If I can make just one person lose themselves in the music, then I feel Iâ€™m giving something special backâ€¦ from something Iâ€™ve been given.â€ D:Fuse.
D:Fuse began his musical career in Austin, Texas writing and performing industrial music under the name â€œCulture Industryâ€ as a drummer and singer before he turned to DJ-ing. In 1998, he teamed up with his good friend Shane Howard to form Expansion. The pair pressed their first two tracks themselves and circulated the vinyl at that yearâ€™s WMC. Within months the singles â€œFeelâ€ and â€œListenâ€ were being played out by Timo Mass, Sasha, John Digweed, Chris Fortier, Danny Howells, Jerry Bonham, and a host of other leading name DJs. â€œFeelâ€ was also selected by Dave Seaman for his â€œBuenos Airesâ€ Global Underground compilation and, within months, the D:Fuse name was known in the worldwide dance music scene.
